Split Tunnel VPN to bypass Chinese Sensorship
Posted on 2014-01-08
My company has an office in China. The great firewall of China often gets in the way of our western employees accessing sites that they need to work. Some sites are completely blocked, others have their capability degraded to the point where they can be hardly used (such as Gmail).
We have a Sonicwall TZ170 in both Ottawa, Canada and Dongguan, China. We have a VPN connection established between the sites. I have tried routing all the traffic from Dongguan to Ottawa and this works, but it is far too slow to be practical.
I am looking for a way to split the traffic so that restricted sites go through the VPN and unrestricted sites go through the Chinese internet. Any suggestions?
Also, we have used various VPN services on the client machines and these work well. But I would rather have something centrally managed. Is there a way to route specific traffic through a 3rd party VPN?
